Thank you

Re: how long do they keep? preserves, chutney etc

I am so glad that you asked. I started makin jam last year and am addicted. Been feeling really lost over winter without wild fruits to jam. I been tempted to make marmalade so may be buying seville oranges in the next shop. Its nice to know that the jam I have made to date will keep!
